FCC puts Boeing’s request for a system of 147 broadband satellites to a vote
Last Thursday, the interim chair of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Jessica Rosenworsel, submitted a vote on the three other commissioners of the North American regulatory agency, Boeing, to order a system of 147 broadband satellites.
As reported by the regulatory agency, “It is proposed to request permission from Boeing to launch and operate a non-geostationary satellite orbit system for a vote in the fixed-satellite service.
Although the FCC has not commented further, for now, observers believe this announcement presupposes approval of Boeing’s request, because FCC officials generally make requests that they will approve, according to For the press in North America.
Boeing first submitted its order to the FCC in 2017 for its constellation, in order to provide fast broadband Internet service to resident consumers, government users, and professionals in the United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
in 2019, SpaceX asked the FCC to deny Boeing’s request, Claiming there was a “clear risk of malicious interference with other systems” or “ensuring that Boeing’s operations were different.” This means that it will not harm other operators and that it will apply reasonable terms.
According to Reuters, in April, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to approve SpaceX’s plan to deploy some Starlink satellites into lower-than-planned Earth orbit as part of its efforts to offer broadband satellite internet. Elon Musk has applied for approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to carry 2,824 satellites in low orbit as part of a plan to provide high-speed broadband Internet services to people who do not currently have access. SpaceX, which plans to eventually deploy 12,000 satellites, He previously said that the Starlink constellation would cost him about $10 billion.
The FCC also said that SpaceX agreed to accept that its low-altitude satellites may encounter interference from satellites deployed under Amazon’s Kuiper Systems project. In July, the founder of Blue Origin set up this company, Jeff Bezos announced that he will invest more than 10 billion dollars To build a network of 3,236 satellites in low Earth orbit.
